                                                      BHARUCH
 
 Bharuch is a sprawling ancient city in the Indian state of Gujarat. This heroic city boasts of having a 2000 year old history and is made pious by the holy waters of River Narmada. The city flourished beautifully under the rule of the Solanki Rajputs and is accredited as one of the ancient sea ports which benefited the traders and travellers in about 1st century AD. Due to the existence of Bhrigu Maharshi temple here, Bharuch was earlier addressed as 'Bhrigukachba'. 
 
 The Dutch and the English influence is very much evident in the form of colonial buildings, worship centres and palatial structures, as many businessmen from these places came down to Bharuch to establish their industries in about 17th century. 
 
 Bharuch is also a home for many top class industries. Long staple cotton factories and textile mills almost dominate many streets of the city. 
 
 Bharuch fort is the symbol of pride for the Solanki dynasty which mesmerises the tourists with its lofty pinnacle. It offers spectacular views of the flowing Narmada. Some of the British offices and buildings were enclosed in the fort. The city with many Hindu and Jain temples is an important religious place. It is worth to pay a visit to the historic Bhrigu Maharshi temple. Dashashwamedh Ghat also merits a visit.
 
 Navarathi is the main celebrated festival. The city hosts the colourful kite-flying festival in the month of January. During your visit make sure that you don’t miss to eat and pack the ‘Roasted salty peanuts’ which has gained international recognition.
